India should reduce petrol imports by 2022: PM Modi

PM Modi launches Delhi Metro's Magenta Line

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today advocated the use of public transport to save on fuel and costs associated with the import of petroleum, saying travelling on a metro train should be a "prestige issue".

The Prime Minister asserted that governance can not happen when the dominant thought process begins at "Mera Kya" and ends at 'Mujhe Kya.' He said that these mindsets are now being changed.

We live in an era in which connectivity is all-important, he said, adding that just inaugurated metro line would serve not just the present, but also future generations. 24th December 2002.Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ji took the ride on the metro.

Talking to DNA, Ambrish Kuhar, a government employee and a resident of Noida Sector 37, said the Magenta Line was an answer to their long pending prayers.

The Prime Minister added, "When I became CM, people told me of a few places where no CMs went because they were inauspicious". "Faith is important but blind faith is not desirable". I was clear I would go to all those places in my first year itself.
